Plimoth Plantation was founded in 1947 as a living history museum to preserve history of some of our first settlers who immigrated to America to avoid religious persecution. Interpreters within the village are dressed in period costume and interact with visitors in their 1627 first person knowledge and view point. Visit their website www.plimoth.org.
Printed on the back of this piece: Francis Cooke arrived on the Mayflower in 1620 with his son, John. His wife, Hester, who was a Walloon Protestant, followed in 1623 with the rest of the family.
